Local Government

AMS File Transfer is used widely within Government Departments, Councils and Governing bodies throughout the UK. Increase security and modernise the way large and/or sensitive files are transferred, shared or collaborated on for your department, council or community

Keeping your data safe, at all times

The information, files and data government departments, councils and governing bodies transfer, share and collaborate on often contains sensitive data relating to staff, members of the public, customers and suppliers. It comes as no surprise to us that our contacts in the public sector feel a real duty of care to protect this data as much as possible.

There are 3 core principals:

  • Data must be secure from unauthorised access
  • Data must be safeguarded against unauthorised modification
  • Data must be accessible when and to who it is required

Managing the security of files and personal data while being transferred or shared has historically been a tricky process and has often resulted in users finding a work round, which lacks control and security or the process for the recipient or 3rd party being clunky and long winded.

AMS File Transfer makes the process of sharing sensitive information or large files with members of the public and external third parties simple and secure, when dealing with processes such as pre-planning applications, Tourist information collateral and child services. Your data is encrypted in transit and at rest. The solution is easy to use and intuitive for both internal and external users.

The Problem

Planning applicants, Child and Adult Services departments, Tourist Information and other government departments often need to gain access to sensitive information and often very large files for a variety of purposes. Traditionally this may have been achieved through a manual process, such printing and posting, burning information to disk and faxing.

The Solution

Typically, we work these departments to eliminate legacy transfer methods, such as FTP, SFTP, chunking e-mails to secure the way they transfer, share and collaborate on this information. With our solution all your data is encrypted with 256-bit AES encryption and we can bypass all file type and file size limitations you may have encountered with traditional transfer methods, such as chunking emails.

The Advantages

By using our solution for these transfer and sharing requirements your process for staff and external parties including members of the community are made a lot simpler, the process is now completely secure and you have full control over how information and files are transferred, shared and collaborated on.
